Cornelia H., age 25, North Carolina

Rained all night. The mill dam broke again, not badly washed this time. We have had so much rain this fall. Every new moon we have a freshet. I made Jim a pair of pants today. Cloudy still.   *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L. Clinard and Richard Russell, used with permission.)
